She knew nothing



"She as yet knew nothing of the crown but it's flowers. She did not foresee that she was soon to feel the crown's dreadful weight."
Marquis De Segur on Marie Antoinette, 1783

  6. the coppola film was absolutely brilliant. i adore kirsten as an actress and think she was so perfect for the role! it must have been such a dream to costume and set design, as well.

    as for the actual marie antoinette story - she really did get herself into a bit of a catastrophe. i have so much respect for her, though. she was a true it-girl.

  8. Very true for most of the time. The grandeur is difficult to resist yet the turmoil behind is quite hidden.
